My one doctor has two such paintings in his waiting room. very few of his patients can name all the presidents pictured.

Trump is president.

I hope this isn't a caption competition. I have no words.

There are some very sick people in the USA is all I can say.

Look up the word 'mawkish' in your Websters.

As a caricature funny, as anything else rather disturbed.

It's a fake.

And it's been around for a while, pre-Trump. There's a democrat one too.

Nobody ever accused Trump of having good taste.

Y'know, I can't imagine a Canadian artist doing something like that with Prime Ministers. Cultural divide.

who's the woman in the background supposed to be?The first female Republican president, according to the artist.

Trump is president.The one standing on the left actually looks a lot like Mitt Romney. The others are pretty obvious.

Chris is correct.

As I said, I can't imagine a Canadian artist doing that with past Prime Ministers. Wouldn't really "sell" whichever political party's leaders were being eulogized.

It was never hung in the White House.

The painting is probably the only way Trump is going to instantly lose 75 lbs.

The blurry woman in the background in the Republican version (the first female Republican president, says the artist) looks a fair bit like Nikki Haley.

Actually, I don't mind the paintings; they're not great art, but not egregious propaganda like McNaughton's codswallop in a similar style (link here, if you have a strong stomach (http://jonmcnaughton.com/)).

Chris is correct.

the republican president painting is not a fake, it's actually hanging in the white house, and it was on 60 minutes last night.

it's dictator kitsch.

I stand corrected, the guy really is a scum bag.

I did not think the paintings were fake, but I thought perhaps Trump would not be sleazy enough to hang it in the white house, I was wrong.

I can just imagine what Teddy Roosevelt would have to say about Trump.

My understanding of the news story I read about the painting this morning, paulf, is that Trump has a print hanging in the White House, not the original painting...

Lose 75lbs, and grow some hair.
I think the model must have been Robert Redford!

I don't have a TV so I missed the 60 min program. And I hear enough about Trump here (the bilge) to last me a life time.

A print, ya he would go the cheap route.

I was kidding.

I meant they couldn’t all be sitting together, which would be hard for MAGA guys to understand.

And Trump is shown with a drink, and he doesn’t drink.

And Trump is shown with a drink, and he doesn’t drink.To give the painter credit for accuracy, it looks like Trump has a Diet Coke.

While I certainly won't defend them as art, I kind of like the pictures in a strange sort of way. They look like a supremely benevolent version of an afterlife, where all our earthly faults have been repaired, and we can sit around and laugh about the stupid sh!t we did while we were alive.

McNaughton's codswallop in a similar style (link here, if you have a strong stomach (http://jonmcnaughton.com/)).

A couple of those actually gave me a chuckle.

To the OP. No way Grant would be back in the distance. He be at the table with several empty glasses.....

I was struck by how the artist described his difficulty with getting Trump's smile just right. Trump is not capable of a genuine smile like normal human beings. Where his soul should be there is nothing but an empty black hole. In the end, he gave Trump a very normal smile. Look at it and try to remember if you've ever seen such a smile on that man's face.

I'd guess that Ike, being younger, would have held the varmint while Teddy b*tch-slapped him. THEN they'd kill him.

Good point. I have often had the same thought. The hideous, self satisfied smirk with the mouth closed seems to be the predominant "smile". It has nothing to do with an expression of warmth, humour or fellow feeling with another human being. He is a truly ugly creature.
